  Panthers | Luke Kuechly held out    Wed May 24, 11:52 AM

Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly (back) is being held out of drills Wednesday, May 24, due to lower back tightness.

Footballguys view: Kuechly is a pros pro, so there's no need to have him out there if he's a bit banged up. The Panthers will wisely monitor the veteran, just like they did when they held him out the final six games of the regular season due to a concussion.

  Cowboys | Dallas eyeing Daryl Washington?    Tue May 23, 07:29 PM

Free-agent LB Daryl Washington (Cardinals) has drawn interest from the Dallas Cowboys, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys would have to determine whether or not Washington is worth the risk. He was talented when he played, but it's been some time since Washington has been on the football field. Washington was recently reinstated from his suspension and has not played in the NFL since 2013.

  Cardinals | Deone Bucannon had surgery    Tue May 16, 01:36 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Deone Bucannon (ankle) recently underwent ankle surgery, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Bucannon's goal is to return to action by early September.

Footballguys view: Bucannon missed three games last year after suffering a high ankle sprain. This surgery was to clean up a lingering problem according to Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians. With his Week 1 status in question, we could see Bucannon put on the PUP list to start the season. That would force him out the first six weeks of the regular season. After that, the Cardinals would have a three-week window to decide whether or not to activate Bucanon or put him on season-ending Injured Reserve.

  Falcons | Deion Jones added weight    Tue May 16, 12:19 PM

Atlanta Falcons LB Deion Jones was encouraged to add weight in the offseason, and he weighs 230 pounds. He wants to play at that weight or at 235 pounds.

Footballguys view: Jones was listed around 220-ish last year as a rookie with the Falcons. He's their best cover linebacker, and Jones should be able to retain his lateral agility with 10 extra pounds (or so) of muscle.

  Chiefs | Derrick Johnson remains on track    Sun May 14, 04:36 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') said he remains on schedule in his recovery and hopes to be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Chiefs here. Johnson is the heart and soul of the Chiefs defense, and when he's on the field he's always around the ball. This is the second time Johnson has had an Achilles' injury, so expect the team to take it easy on him in training camp.

  Rams | Mark Barron will only play LB    Sat May 13, 02:10 PM

  Cardinals | Daryl Washington released    Thu May 11, 01:55 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Daryl Washington was released Thursday, May 11. Washington was reinstated from his suspension two weeks ago and has not played in the NFL since 2013.

Footballguys view: It's been three years since Washington played a down in the NFL. His second chance could come with a team like the Raiders or the Bengals...but it's not a lock that someone will be willing to add him even though he showed great talent when playing.

  49ers | NaVorro Bowman not being shopped    Thu May 11, 01:48 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman (Achilles') is not on the trading block, contrary to reports. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan released a joint statement Thursday, May 11, that made it clear Bowman has been a 'consummate professional' and they are excited for him to return to the field this year.

Footballguys view: Contradicting some earlier reports, it seems like Bowman will remain a Niner. Of course, the team could just be covering it's collective rear end because they couldn't get interest and now need him happy as he's stuck there.

  Giants | Mark Herzlich cross-training at tight end    Wed May 10, 12:13 PM

New York Giants LB Mark Herzlich has accepted the team's challenge for him to learn the tight end position this offseason in order to address the teams need for a blocker at that position, according to NJ.com's Dan Duggan.

Footballguys view: The Giants could use a blocking tight end, and it might just be Herzlich who gets the job done best. They drafted Evan Engram (Ole Miss) in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft, but he's an "F" tight end who is there to rip the seam and star as a receiver.

  49ers | Two 49ers linebackers ahead of schedule    Tue May 9, 02:45 PM

San Francisco 49ers LBs Reuben Foster (shoulder) and NaVorro Bowman (Achilles') are ahead of schedule in their rehabilitation. Foster is expected to be on the field for the start of training camp, according to general manager John Lynch.

Footballguys view: The 49ers selected Foster in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft even though he was recovering from shoulder surgery. There were reports that he may need another surgery on the shoulder, but if he's going to be ready for training camp then that's not the case. When healthy, Foster could play like Patrick Willis for the 49ers defense.

Indianapolis Colts LB Sean Spence is the leading candidate to start at one of inside linebacker spots next season.

Footballguys view: Spence has been slowing working his way back to form since a devastating knee injury derailed his early career with Pittsburgh. He's a sleeper in deep IDP leagues this year.

  Cardinals | Deone Bucannon's option picked up    Wed Apr 26, 01:04 PM

The Arizona Cardinals exercised the fifth-year option for LB Deone Bucannon on Wednesday, April 26.

Footballguys view: Bucannon was one of the vanguard of the safety/linebacker tweeners that are flourishing in the new pass-happy NFL. The Cardinals lost two important safeties this offseason, so Bucannon has become that much more important even though his position designation is linebacker.

  Cardinals | Daryl Washington reinstated    Tue Apr 25, 05:49 PM

Arizona Cardinals LB Daryl Washington was reinstated from his suspension Tuesday, April 25. Washington had multiple violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy and also pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in March of 2014. He has not played in the NFL since 2013.

Footballguys view: Washington was once an IDP stud, but he has been away from the league for so long that it's hard to know if he'll ever even make a roster again. The pass rush/off ball versatility he provided the Cardinals is en vogue with Haason Reddick (Temple) likely to go in the mid-to-late first and Tyus Bowser (Houston) possibly sneaking into the first with similar profiles, but Washington's best football is behind.

  Chiefs | Derrick Johnson good to go for camp    Mon Apr 17, 03:46 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson (Achilles') said he will be ready to participate fully in training camp. Johnson ruptured his Achilles' tendon late last season.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries just aren't as devastating as they used to be. Getting Johnson back is great for the Chiefs defense where he can roam the field and lead the charge on that side of the ball.
